no body damage shes fine shes just a lil shook up. I keep telling her 4 wheel drive or not gotta be careful in the snow. She told me she zig zagged 5 times from side to side before she ended up in the ditch, with the 3 inch body lift and bigger tires shes lucky she didn't roll. Thank God shes ok and the was no one out on the road. Thanks alot everyone i appricate it i gotta get my truck back to normal condition.

My first thought too. I know last time I was stuck there was a 5.0 Earthquake in my steering wheel after I was out. I bet its just dirt in the wheel.

i to had the same problem of mud packing on the inside of one of my wheels and it caused for a major vibration at any speed over 50-55...
